John Grabow couldn’t have done much more to win a spot in the Los Angeles Dodgers’ bullpen. In six appearances this Spring, the 33-year-old hurler gave up no runs, one walk, and only four hits across six innings while striking out seven.

But yesterday the Men in Blue chose to keep fellow non-roster invitee Jamey Wright, and to send Grabow back to the minors. As expected, Grabow responded by exercising an opt-out clause in the minor-league contract he signed with the Dodgers during the off-season. As a result, he’s a free agent.

It’s not clear Grabow will land a roster spot elsewhere in the MLB. Despite his strong showing in Spring Training, the former Pittsburgh Pirate was largely ineffective during his last two seasons with the Chicago Cubs, during which he recorded ERAs of 7.36 and 4.76.
